Somehow, I suspect the re-manufacturing/pre-mature scrapping cost far exceeds the cost of the lost oil in re-cycling.
Again: I have seen no evidence showing adhering to BMW's recommend oil change intervals reduces engine life. If you have some data to support as much then I'd be very interested in seeing it.
